Re: Weather and sending the kids outside to play
Here in WI they keep the kids in when it's less than 15 degrees outside for the littlier kids. I think they go colder with the older kids, but as my son is just 4 I don't have any experience with that yet.
At my home, we go out in pretty much all weather, if only to turn right back inside when it's too miserable out :-). I always try to give it a shot. I mean, sometimes 20 degrees is really wet, windy, and cold. Other times, -10 really doesn't feel so bad, especially when it's dry with no wind.
Wet and windy always get me, personally.
